UPDATE with video Alec Baldwin killed two birds with one SNL stone tonight, reprising his Trump to jab both the president and Harvey Weinstein. “What an idiot,” said Baldwin in character about the disgraced ex-Miramax honcho. “He could have gotten away with all of it if only he’d gotten himself elected president.”
Unlike the real thing, Baldwin’s Trump was in the U.S. as Melania (Cecily Strong) and an Airplane-style inflatable Trump pilot headed to China.
With Alex Moffat playing Paul Manafort, Beck Bennett as Mike Pence and Kate McKinnon doing her wonderfully bizarre troll-like Jeff Sessions, the whole gang ended up in a shower – so Trump could make sure Manafort wasn’t wearing a wire and a fully-suited Pence could wash Manafort’s back.
“If I go down,” Trump says, explaining Pence’s presence, “I’m taking Church Lady with me.”
Said McKinnon’s Sessions, “I’m wearing a bathing costume from my favorite place, the 1890s,” recommending everyone get used to wearing stripes.
